MEET THE ARTIST: DEBORAH CAMERON
Deborah gives her thoughts on working alongside The Velvet Easel Gallery in Portobello and talks about her own career as an artist –
When I first met Roz, the owner of The Velvet Easel Gallery in Portobello a couple of years ago, she expressed a keen desire to open her own gallery. So it was a huge pleasure to see that dream fulfilled in November 2013 when, after lots of discussion and even more hard work, the gallery opened it’s doors on Portobello High Street.
I am a self taught painter and have had long period where my paintings never made it onto canvas, being involved with the gallery, seeing Roz’s enthusiasm and determination which has brought her vision to life has inspired me to pick up my brushes again.
The gallery is home to a fine and varied collection of art work and it is a privilege to be a small part of that.
Deborah’s seascape (see image), Tumbling Waves (Acrylic and Wax on Canvas) is currently on sale in the gallery.
